Saving the Lenape Blue Flour corn seeds for next year. Half of the seeds are going to Tony West in Ohio -- the farmer who donated the Lenape corn seeds to the project. We are going to plant the rest in a plot in Williamsburg next spring. Stay tuned!
The winter rye has been coming up nicely with the exception of the swath of destruction wreaked by the rogue Brooklyn street pigeons. Every time we put down some fresh seed a gang of pigeons lurk on the sidewalk and on the rooftops waiting to swoop down. Today Jeff and I reseeded once again and decided to try a couple methods to discourage them. Christmas tinsel and bird netting. Will it work?
